Membership Benefits

  • Member Plaque: You will receive a plaque to display in your business that demonstrates to the community that you care and are committed to promoting a positive business climate and bring credibility to your business.

 

  • Grand Opening Celebrations: Whether a brand-new business, a relocation, or expansion, we are here to help you celebrate! We offer use of our “Grand Opening” banner for your business and are happy to hold a ribbon cutting if you desire. 

 

  • Monthly E-Newsletter:  In addition to keeping up with chamber news, you can promote your business or organization, be spot lighted in our member of the month, share about new items or services available at your business, or announce such things as an open house, upcoming event, special news, etc. This is the primary way we communicate with our members, so we strongly encourage everyone to not only receive it, but take a moment each month to look it over.  

 

  • Gift Certificate Program: As a member you can participate in our Gift Certificate Program designed to encourage local spending. We also encourage you to consider our gift certificates (currently good at over 30 area locations) as employee bonuses, incentives, etc. 

 

  • Business Card Display: We can display up to 60 of your business cards for others to take when they visit our office. We will also display your brochures or flyers at no charge. The Chamber of Commerce office is located in a prime spot on our busy town square at 25 S. Main St. in Sullivan.

  • Workshops, Networking and Quarterly Chamber Meeting: In partnering with other organizations such as the West Central Indiana Small Business Development Center, we endeavor to provide helpful workshops and other events several times a year to help assist you in different areas that are pertinent to your business/organization to help you and your business succeed. This also provides opportunities to network and establish business relationships with other leaders in the community.

 

  • New Resident/Relocation Packages: This is an opportunity to build your company image and an opportunity include information/advertising about your business to those who are new to the area or considering a move. Consider including a coupon, promotional item or even a flyer about your business. 

 

  • Holiday Market & Expo: We invite you to plan to join us in November of each year to kick off the Holiday Season in Sullivan County and promote all that your business/organization has to offer. Spaces are limited so watch your inbox for updates and opportunities to sign-up. 

 

  • Sponsorships: We offer sponsorship opportunities for several of our events. Becoming a sponsor is a great way to support the chamber while also benefitting from additional exposure for your business/organization through radio, television, newspaper and social media outlets, as well as the event that is being sponsored.

 

  • Annual Awards Banquet: Recognition by award programs that applaud leaders and outstanding businesses in our community. We enjoy the annual opportunity we have to recognize outstanding member achievements as well as celebrate all of our members. 

 

  • Community Involvement:  Opportunity to demonstrate leadership by volunteering at a Chamber event which makes the community a better place to live, work and play. We invite you to participate in community programs such as the High School Mock Interview program that we began in 2016. We see all of our members as a valuable resource for training up the younger generation of leaders for our community

 

 

  • Monthly Meetings: While our board of directors does use this time to make important decisions, we welcome any member to join us to get more involved and hands on in your chamber. We meet at 502 N. Court St. at 11:30 a.m. typically on the third Thursday of each month.
